New Brunswick Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2022 School of Communication and Information Course Listing Explanation of Three-Part Course Numbers  

Explanation of Three-Part Course Numbers

The number preceding each course title is divided into three parts. The first two digits are the administrative code (standing for a faculty or a school), the next three digits are the subject code, and the final three digits are the course code.

Administrative Codes

The code for School of Communication and Information undergraduate programs is 04. For a complete list of administrative codes used in this catalog, see the beginning of the Programs of Study and Courses for Liberal Arts and Sciences Students section.

Subject Codes

A subject code comprises the third through fifth digits in all course numbers and indicates the subject matter of the course. Courses with the following subject codes are listed in this chapter (this does not constitute a list of majors).

  189  Communication and Information (this includes courses in the Digital Communication, Information, and Media program)

  192  Communication

  547  Information Technology and Informatics

  567  Journalism and Media Studies

Course Codes

The course code comprises the sixth, seventh, and eighth digits in all course numbers. Course codes from 100 to 299 indicate introductory and intermediate undergraduate courses. Codes from 300 to 499 indicate advanced undergraduate courses. Courses coded from 500 to 799 are graduate courses.

Two course codes separated by a comma indicate that each semester may be taken independently of the other (example: 04:189: 493,494). Two course codes separated by a hyphen indicate that satisfactory completion of the first semester is a prerequisite for the second semester; the first semester may be taken for credit without taking the second, except where a statement is added to indicate that both semester courses must be completed in order to receive credit.

Credits awarded for the successful completion of each course are indicated in parentheses following the course title. The notation BA indicates that the number of credits is determined by arrangement with the department offering the course.
